Rock looked a bit black on approach but the route was in great nick with solid turf and neve.

Awesome route that’s currently in primo condition

Like Dave says, a good day out. Soloed p1. Windy, snowy and foggy walk-in and had to get almost under the Monolith before we saw it, but the climb itself was sheltered from wind, though not from snow and spindrift.

Good day out. Very snowy, frozen turf, not much ice...

Approach was wild with big gusts nearly taking us off our feet. The route itself was sheltered and very enjoyable, I got the fun pitches (1,3,5). No ice around but turf was frozen.

Climbed in 4 pitches after solo to first belay. No ice with just powder snow on the ledges and corners but plenty of well frozen turf. Very windy on the north ridge for the approach compensated by great views in the low sun during the descent back down from the summit.

Andy Hewison 11/Feb/17 AltLd

Good day, high winds occasionally and winds very high on summit. No ice but the turf was frozen. Soloed p1,Brian had p2&4 (interesting traverse on the turf ledges), I got p3&5 (the chimney pitch)

Exciting approach. Soloed p1. I led 3 and 5. Amazing conditions and no one else on the mountain. Fabulous day and a real fun route. Managed to thrutch my hexes off my harness in p5 chimney. Gear placements needed to be a bit more imaginative. Chimney fine and then one tricky move onto the slab.

Great wee climb. Clag in which hid some exposure. Bullet hard turf and some useful neve. Also some powdery snow which made top pitch sporting. Solo of pitch 1.

Turf bomber, lots of powder tho so a tad tricky. Brilliant Cold Climbs classic

I led the easy second pitch only. Stunning day out with seemingly the whole of Scotland pristine and deep in snow. Great banter too. Crux was trying to control my fury with my leashes while attempting to rack a long sling!

niallk 04/Dec/10 AltLd O/S

Thrutched like a good 'un up the crux chimney before composing myself to despatch the rest in slightly better style. Rime on rock, turf good. http://vimeo.com/17534791
